This Academic Medical Center will entail an 80,000 SF, 2-story building, which will include space for primary care physicians, specialists, imaging, laboratory, physical therapy, and 24-hour pharmacy and emergency departments. The building will have 64 outpatient exam rooms for use by 30 physicians working in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, women’s health, behavioral health, cardiology, orthopedics, and other areas. Space for clinical research will be included within each clinic module. Along with physical therapy and occupational therapy, there will also be meeting space for community members and Creighton University’s medical students. Creighton’s family medicine residency program will be based here as well.
Due to the sloping nature of the site, the design for the building will place functional areas and entries on two floors. Emergency and academic space will be on the first floor along with an 18-room clinic module and space for physical and occupational therapy. Patient parking will be readily available to a lower level entry. The emergency department will have immediate access for both ambulance traffic as well as walk-in patients requiring treatment. The upper level will include space for three additional 18-room clinic modules, diagnostic imaging, laboratory, specialists, and outpatient pharmacy. An upper level entry will also be accessible from patient parking and drop-off. A large two-story space will visually connect the lobbies from the lower and upper levels, and provide scenic views of downtown Omaha. Construction is underway and should be complete in late fall 2016.
